Again I would like to introduce a new plugin, which supports people to downloading files in the app. Who wants to learn and install this plugin, please make sure to have some knowledge about:

  • What is kintone
  • What is Plugin
  • Plugin eco-system and Plugin development Tuttorial


When you use the app, there are attachments. You want to download each file, OK no problem, click the link of this file is downloaded. You want to download full file, kintone doesn't support this function, you can only click each link. So very inconvenient.

Luckily, I found a plugin that supports this. That is Download Attached Files plugin. I will explain more about this in the next part.

How to use Plug-in

Download Attached Files plugin supports people to downloading files in the app.

Setting config

Setting config to set which files the user is downloaded. If not, the plugin will by default download all the files.If you do not configure, the plugin will download all files by default. When you have not set up the config, the config interface will look like this. By default, all files will be downloaded and the file name will be changed, in the format {file} {no}. {extension} If you want the file isn't downloaded, you will need to uncheck it. You can also change the file name. Filename must not same or empty. Otherwise it will fail When you finish the setup, you must submit. Done, please update app.

Setting desktop

When you added the plugin, the app interface looked like this To download file: After you see a zip file is downloaded you will see the results message. The name of the zip file is format {current_year}{current_month}{current_day}.zip. Open the zip file and you will see the downloaded files.
